THE KARAITE ISRAEL MOSQUE OF ASCENSION
AND THE TEMPLE OF KEDAR MINISTRIES
(The Original Kedar-Rite of the Karaim)
WE ARE NOT BORN IN SIN BUT ARE BORN IN THE SINFUL STATE OF EXPULSION:
We have to understand the difference between personal sins and the fallen state. Everyone is accountable for their own personal sins. We do not inherit the sins of the First Adam as Ezekiel correctly states:
The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.
Therefore we are not born in Sin but are rather born in the Sinful State of expulsion.. Outside the Garden we are born in a contaminated and continually Falling State. However even in the Sinful State we are still required to be Perfect.
Be ye therefore PERFECT, even as your Father which is in heaven is PERFECT
Even Abraham was required to Walk with God in Perfection:
And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou PERFECT.
Since we are born without Sin we are required to maintain ourselves in a PERFECT and Sinless manner. Being PERFECT in an imperfect world is extremely difficult but yet not impossible. The Prophet Enoch(Idris) walked perfectly with God his entire life and was taken up into the Heaven of Ascension.. Enoch proved that man can be perfect.
And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.
Enoch proved that we are NOT born in Sin and that we are still required to be Perfect. However being Perfect in an imperfect world is an extremely and increasingly difficult task. Particularly during this time when a Friend of the World is an Enemy of God.
Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.
Only by accepting the Second Adam can we begin to remove the cursed and Fallen State of the First Adam.
